Series I Parking Light Switch

Recommended Posts

Hey, anybody win this auction? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=017&sspagename=STRK%3AMEDW%3AIT&viewitem=&item=270108222888&rd=1 I was the first to bid because of the parking light switches, where normally U.S. models have the blanking thing. I would have bid up, maybe not that much, but I had to go to the ranch for branding time and was away from the computer and am too cheap to place an over the top bid and maybe win for more than I wanted to spend. I am assuming this is an original part with the early defroster switch. I've never seen one on auction before. The overall condition of the choke plate, lever mechanism looks a little ragged though.

Gary-

I also wondered if any other board members had placed bids.

I bid on it also. Came in 2nd. :(

Not surprised though as I didn't place a high enough bid and knew it when I did it-------felt I had blown enough $$$$'s earlier when I won the bid on a set of American Racing Equipment Libre rims!! :classic:

Was working on a center console repair when it ended. Just wanted it for the switches as the plate was quite a bit worse off than the one I have.

Maybe some day another will appear for us to lust over----

I think all of your observations and comments are correct about it though.

Alright, I confess, I was the auction winner. I wasn't sure if I would be congratulated or berated for what I paid, but it sounds like I did ok. The good news for those that missed out is I am open to trade offers for other early parts I will need for #237. I know that I will be needing an early map light cover for sure. Speaking of #237, for those wanting an update, after a very long and much delayed journey, I should be finally picking her up and bringing her home tonight, but that is another very long story that I will tell over the next day or two in another thread after I had a chance to look her over.

Congrats. I am sorta glad I was gone for the end of the auction otherwise I might have been tempted into a bidding war. My car needs so many other things at this point, but like I said, I never saw one on eBay before and was kind of hoping no one else would spot it when I realized I was going to be out in the boonies when the auction ended anyway. I suppose I should have brought it to the clubs attention. Glad someone here got it for a good price. I believe the double switch is really is more of a curiosity than an actual North American model part, but would have been fun to have. I'm looking for a fog light switch for the dash too. The one that looks like the early hazard switch (toggle), but with the fog lights marking.

Mike B----

If you are serious, I've got an early map light complete and some other nice early parts. :)

Send me a P.M. and we'll discuss it if you would like.

I will be out of town on business for the firm from Tuesday early a.m. until Thursday evening, but could reply before or after then.

If you want to keep it and just made the offer in jest I understand that too! :D

Thanks for the hope!

Zup, I am serious about trading for other parts I need, but I want to try to be fair and help out someone that has been wanting this for awhile if I can. Not an easy decision, so I'll have to give it some thought as to what to do.

A7DZ, no 237 doesn't have the rear defroster.

I did not think so, but am looking forward to seeing both of your cars sometime in the near furture. Probably later this summer when I get this one back on the road. If that is possible. Even if you got hasseled about the keys some, I am glad you have them as from the pictures of your car they went to the right place. If they would of fit my car I may have been right there with you on that one too.
